Ethan Barstow and Kate Kinsella are looking for the same man, Ethan’s brother Charley, in this action packed western romance authored by Kristy McCaffrey. They are under several misconceptions.
Kate’s looking for Charley Barstow to return him to his pregnant fiancé, Agnes. Kate mistakenly thinks Ethan is a killer and outlaw per Charley’s drunken ramblings. Ethan is looking for his brother Charley to mend fences and make peace. From conversations in town, Ethan thinks Kate is Charley’s fiancé.
They decide to continue the hunt together after an action packed rescue of Kate by Ethan. This story features two very strong people who believe the worse of each other, but know in their hearts it can’t be true.
Author Kristy McCaffrey gives us raging river crossings, outlaws as Kate stated “the most inept outlaws ever”, mysterious appearances of Joe the Indian, a wolf called Bart is there when needed, attacks by Indian children, good and evil spirits, and attraction between two main characters that grows day by day until there is nothing to do but give in.
Kristy McCaffrey kept the story moving with a good plot, and sub-characters and lots of action. The story has more than a touch of the paranormal that was very enjoyable and added flavor to the plot, as well as the mystery. I
